On Sunday, Jan. 14, St. Wilfrid Catholic Church honored members of the Catholic Daughters of the Americas who have been members for more than 50 years. Pictured above are the members who were present at Mass on Sunday, back row, left to right: Colleen Swenson, 63 years; Marlene Howard, 54 years; and Myrna Knigge, 54 years; front row: Marie Rankin, 72 years. Members who were also honored but unable to attend were: Marcy Hinker, 54 years; Kathy Nelson, 54 years; and Marjorie Waits, 66 years.

There was quite a crowd congregated in the St. Wilfrid Parish Hall after Mass on Sunday to enjoy French toast and sausage and support the church basement renovation fund.

On Sunday, Jan 14, the St. Wilfrid’s Altar Society, under the leadership and diligent work of Liz Swenson, served a French toast and sausage breakfast with all proceeds going to the basement renovation fund.

The church basement, also known as the Parish Hall, has been completely renovated in the past several years due to some foundation reinforcement needed and safety concerns. Because of the completion of the renovation, the church is now able to utilize the basement for CCD classes and events such as funeral dinners, meetings, and meals served like the breakfast on Sunday.

Church affiliated organizations have been holding events to help continue to raise funds to fulfill the financial obligation needed to complete the renovation. This particular event raised over $750 and served 85 people.
